    Two of best young actresses today. Their resume is building and both are so talented. Loved Michele in Brokeback and Manchester by the Sea. I thought Jessica should have won for Zero Dark Forty. Outstanding performance. Who will be first ?

    I would say that Michelle Williams is a veteran actress. Dawson’s Creek debuted over 20 years ago, for goodness sakes. You can argue that Chastain is a young actress, though. Her feature film debut was in 2008, I believe.

    I’m thinking that Williams will win her Oscar first. Honestly, she deserved to win Best Supporting Actress last year for Manchester by the Sea. Davis was a co-lead in Fences, not a supporting player.

    Williams.

    In fairness, she would/should have won last year if Viola had the stones to go up against Emma and Natalie. But alas.

    I still think The Help was Chastain’s best performance. I want her to do more character roles and see where that gets her. Her past few “Oscar” roles have been big speeches all the time and fast talking.

    Williams deserves a nomination for All the Money in the World. She deserves to have an Oscar already, and maybe next year with Venom she’ll also have an awards pic to go with that. It could be the year of Michelle Williams.

    If Viola Davis wasn’t competing under category fraud last year (a totally unecessary decision, since she would have won in Lead anyway), Michelle Williams would win Supporting Actress and the awful Emma Stone win would have never happened.

    Jessica has never been Oscar worthy to me. Zero Dark Thirty was a outstanding film, but she did absolutely nothing in that film. She would have made a horrible winner.

    If Michelle Williams gets a nomination I think a good campaign could get her an Oscar THIS year. Fifth nomination, all the good press she has received over doing the reshoots for no money when her agent got Wahlberg a million bucks plus nobody else in the race really has a great narrative……If she makes the nomination cut I think someone needs to really work on her campaign.

    Both should win eventually, although I’d put more money on Williams winning a supporting actress Trophy before Chastain wins anything.

    I like Chastain but she’ll never win if she doesn’t change up the types of movies she plays in.

    Why do they “need” oscars, when Glenn Close, Michelle Pfieffer, Annette Benning, Sigourney Weaver, Judy Davis and Laura Dern are far more accomplished actresses still working and active, who have yet to win Oscars.

    Chastain and Williams are fine actresses who get cast a lot currently, for their skill, but also for their relative youth and attractiveness. But in the pecking order of “overdue” actresses, neither are anywhere close to the top.

    I agree that Michelle Williams deserves some recognition, her work is very carefully crafted, and she has grown tremendously as an actress since her first nomination in Brokeback Mountain. She personally gave my favorite performance from an actress this award cycle with All The Money In The World. She’s just beautiful all through out and she’s just stunning in her choices. My Week With Marilyn is one of my favorite performances by her, and I wish she could have won for that but that year was all about Viola v. Meryl.

    On the subject of Viola, she was not category fraud last year. People need to differentiate a leading performance by a female actress, to playing the wife of the lead character. She was placed exactly where she should have been. Denzel was the only lead in that film.

    Honey the names you mentioned are like 10-20 years older than them, so they obviously look more “overdue”.  That being said Michelle Williams is just as overdue as any names on your list. Brokeback Mountain. Wendy and Lucy. My Week with Marilyn. Blue Valentine. All the Money in the World. Synedoche, New York. Shutter Island. Take this Waltz. Meek’s Cutoff. Certain Women. Manchester by the Sea. Enough said I think.

    Chastain is one of my favorite actresses though I recognize her limitations, but it’s been a long time since I felt she had a role that really was deserving of any awards. Outside of Zero Dark Thirty which I do believe she should have won the Oscar for if they couldn’t give it to Riva and the non-nominated Weisz and Cotillard,  I do question her abilities as a leading actress. I’m starting to think she works better in supporting, character roles which is weird for me to say for an actress with her abilities and look.

    I agree with you. I saw Michelle Williams on Broadway in a play, Blackbird, and she simply blew me away. She’s the real deal.
